I was never enamoured with Krueger, even at the beginning. He just struck me as a guy that was outstanding at selling himself. I do think he's a competent assistant, but as a head coach it was obvious fairly quickly that he was in over his head...and I don't think his players ever bought into all of the PowerPoint slide presentations and positive thinking seminars he brought along with him.

Eakins might turn out the same, but for some reason I see something different with him. He's more direct, his message is far more focused and plain to see. Also, he's coming in with a 4 year deal, a show of faith from his employers that Krueger never had.
